Tropical Smoothie

/// May 25th, 2011

Tropical Smoothie - for days you want to escape to paradise but only have a 15 minute lunch break! This quick and refreshing smoothie is one of our favorite slurpable getaways. Glazed doughnut… it’s not a good look for me. The letter below should explain the non-baked recipe that follows.

Dear humidity,

Please go away.  oh, and…

Leave the sunshine, please. Leave my hair alone, you do very evil things to it, not cool. You make me look like a frizzy crispy cream. Boys don’t like girls who look like glazed doughnuts. I need a boy to lug my giant air conditioner into my window. Get it?
You steal my desire to crank on my oven and shove my face with warm & gooey sugar confections, again, not cool. Warm chocolate goo is comforting and gives me great pleasure. Don’t take that away from me, seriously.

Thanks for your consideration,
Frizzy in NYC

I always want to be on a tropical island. I had a mango on the verge of turning to mush. I was seconds away from popping open a bottle of white wine… at 11 am. All these circumstances led to one seriously refreshing smoothie. I used what I had and seemed tropical to me; mix it up to what makes you feel island hopping.
